Mid-Year Top Book Awards

JANUARY: Enchantee by: Gita Trelease

View on Amazon

"I’m proud to announce that this is my second five star read of 2020! I started this book one morning a couple days ago and finished it by the day’s end. There’s so many different elements to this tale: romance, magic, historical background information, etc that every reader will surely find something to connect with..."

FEBRUARY: Too Late by: Colleen Hoover

Check it out on Amazon

This was my second Hoover novel, following my introduction to her writing while reading Verity in 2019. I had heard from several readers familiar with this author's works that that title was an "one-off" to her normal writing style, so I knew I needed to read another book of hers to see it for myself. This title is definitely different from the previous novel I read, but in a good way! I LOVED this one, but beware that the author does address issues surrounding domestic violence, drug abuse, emotional abuse, manipulation, and other tough topics that may be triggering for certain readers.

MARCH: The Familiar Dark by: Amy Engel

"OH. MY. GOD! I binged this book in one sitting! If you’re looking for a fast-paced thriller that is full of unexpected twists, then you’ll want to add this one to your list!" -Full review can be viewed here.

APRIL: The Night Swim by: Megan Goldin

Pre-order on Amazon

"To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever read a five-star thriller like this before and it’ll probably be a long time before it happens again. This one was filled with suspense, interesting tidbits of information needed to solve the cases, and caused me several tears and feelings of abdominal discomfort." -View my full review here.

MAY: The Butterfly Garden by: Dot Hutchison

Check out on Amazon

This is the first book of four in The Collector series; it was also my introduction to this author's writings. I LOVED this book and the world that the author created; I have the other three novels and hope to read them before the year's end!

JUNE: A Good Girl's Guide To Murder by: Holly Jackson

View on Amazon

The author does a different take when it comes to this thriller and that is part of the reason I enjoyed it so much! The readers follow Pip's journey of writing a school paper about a missing teenager and her mission to prove that the police got it all wrong. This novel is fast-paced and filled with unexpected twists; plus, you'll fall in love with Pip and Ravi's friendship!


  1. Out of these I'm most drawn to to The Night Swim. Sounds amazing!

  2. It truly is! I read it a few months ago and it's still on my mind!
